Happy new year! Yes, it’s still an appropriate pleasantry as this is my first real post of 2017. I gather a mess of you are in the midst of a New Year’s Resolution or just trying to pick up the pieces after a messy (read: fun) holiday season. I fall into the latter category. Every year.
No need for excessive motivational words. Long and short: Prepare. There’s simply no better return on investment that having quality meals available. You’ll be better in the gym, better at work, patient with your spouse, kids and will miraculously learn calculus. I like pork, here’s a recipe.
If you need some motivation, check out my last motivational video regarding fitness communities. We’re here for you.
I’ve been a little lazy on my posting in this space, but I remain pretty active on Instagram (@suitcasefitness) – follow me there.
Keep at it!
My local box hosted a level one Crossfit seminar this weekend and, without a home, the gang took the show to the road. Thankfully, Crossfit Cove is a home away from home, an oasis one might say, in Columbia, MD. You know what they also have a lot of in Columbia? Office buildings and families. So if you’re in the area for work or you call Columbia home, this is the box for you.
First: What a great space! Big, open and brand-spanking new equipment. Their coaches and programming are stellar and they have a “kiddie cove” for managing the youngins’ while you get your WOD on. I mean, how cute is this husband and wife pair?

A group dropped in to the Saturday 10a class and, after a rousing warm up from dodgeball hit this partner WOD:
40 Pull ups
60 Sit Ups
60 Box Jumps
2 rounds for time
Just what a guy needs after finishing 15.4 and undoing any good work with food and drinks at the bar. These ladies handled it better me, that much I’m sure.
All in all, a great experience. If you’re on the fence about Crossfit, I think this group will put you on the right side for you.
